Protecting businesses during complex business transations

Businesses in Louisiana and elsewhere have a wide range of business goals; however, a business will always seek to take steps that are in the overall best interest of the company. If it is clear that a business standing alone will not thrive or reach its bounds, owners might consider a merger or acquisition. Such a process is considered a complex business transaction, but when all the steps are properly taken, such a transaction could be the best thing for a current business.

Deceptive trade practice laws in Louisiana

Companies in Louisiana and elsewhere have to be careful in the way they conduct business. The owners of a business are expected to act in a certain way, and specific actions are looked down upon when they are carried out continuously by anyone within a company. Deceptive trade practices not only harm the people the company does business with, but also could harm the reputation and longevity of a business. Therefore, any accusations of unfair business practices or deceptive trade practices should be taken seriously.

What is an asset purchase agreement?

Businesses in Baton Rouge and other cities across the nation have to make minor and major decisions regarding the best interest of the business. In most cases, these decisions are made to keep the business thriving well into the future; however, this does not always mean that the business will remain as it currently is. For some business owners, selling a business is the proper step to take, but this process can be confusing and time-consuming. Thus, some companies opt to just sell a business asset; therefore requiring an asset purchase agreement.

Avoiding an ADA claim against a business

Employers in Louisiana and elsewhere take certain steps to not only protect themselves but also the company or business they own, manage or operate. Because not all employees are the same, certain laws and regulations have been passed to protect specific differences and characteristics an employee might embody. For example, the Americans with Disabilities Act protect an employee with disabilities. And even when employers are well aware of this Act and the rights it affords, this does not prevent an employee from asserting a claim against his or her employer.
